LabVIEW

General Information

LabVIEW is a graphical programming environment used by engineers and scientists to develop sophisticated measurement, test, and control systems using intuitive graphical icons and wires that resemble a flowchart. LabVIEW offers integration with thousands of hardware devices and provides hundreds of built-in libraries for advanced analysis and data visualization. The LabVIEW platform is scalable across multiple targets and operating systems, and since its introduction in 1986 has become an industry leader.

  • UMTC students can purchase a LabVIEW Student Edition for Windows license (that expires Aug 11 of every year).
  • UMTC departments can purchase 1 year LabVIEW Teaching & Research Edition for Windows & Mac licenses.
    • UMTC - CSE has paid for a college-wide LabView license.  CSE staff and faculty should email operator@cselabs.umn.edu to request access to the LabView installer(s) and serial numbers.
